This blog is again overdue, my delay comes from working too much as always, but my feelings are still the same, so much heartbreak from losing such a kindhearted and talented soul. To continue from last week, I once again share the feelings of my fellow fans, some favorite art, and cosplay. Art above by a personal favorite bluezest.
Teri White – Meeting and having the chance to chat with Una was wonderful at SHERLOCKED in Birmingham. Every role I have seen her in was a pleasure to watch.
Sophia Rijsterborgh– She was a real badass as miss Hudson in Sherlock. A landlord of our Dreams and someone which we will miss greatly. The moment she passed away is the moment the world lost a great star, but may she shine brightly in the heavens above to give us some of her Kindness. Guts. Love. Humor. Talent.
Christine Volker – Una was a sheer delight to meet at Sherlocked.
Lea Fleming – Not only meeting her at Sherlocked but also having the honor of having a real conversation with her was so special. I dressed as her and she was so sweet, she said no one had cosplayed her before! She was my hero. (Lea dressed as Mrs. Hudson above).
Mc Harris – She is so beloved that minutes before I met her in Birmingham, her name had been the answer to the quiz program I was watching. As I was chatting with her I told her she was quite surprised. She will be greatly missed.
Leny Alcocer Lopez – I could only add that I admire her so much, and I recognize her magnificent work in the Sherlock series.
Cari Dolcemascolo – My little Una story: A few years ago, at Sherlocked LA, she saw my husband helping me in my wheelchair. She let out her quintessential sweet squeal and had everyone around us literally stop. She told everyone who was around us that she just witnessed true love and everyone should seek such a beautiful relationship and if they didn’t have it to keep looking. She later hugged me during photo opportunities and thanked me for making her day. What a beautiful soul and talented actor she was. (In the picture, she let me lean on her a bit to stay standing ).
We fans have also celebrated our love for Mrs. Hudson Una’s character through cosplay! Myself included, the photos above and below were taken during Sherlocked 2018! My dear friend Lea has dressed as our favorite housekeeper many times as well. -Rosemary

It’s with a heavy heart that I make this post today… London has fallen as we’ve lost our Mrs. Hudson, (Una Stubbs). This talented and kind hearted woman will always be remembered. We send prayers, love, and thoughts to her family and friends…
Now I share some of our personal photos with Una, from the Sherlocked events. We love you Una, you’ll always be our Mrs. Hudson.
I’ll be sharing more blogs celebrating the life of Una Stubbs soon. -Rose (Blogger)
[While we Sherlock fans are stuck at home, staying safe, I thought I’d share this Entertainment Weekly interview with Andrew Scott! The original print was torn, so I thought I’d rewrite it for easier reading].
As “Hot Priest” on Amazon’s Emmy-Winning Fleabag, Andrew Scott’s charm and devilish wit made us all question our faith. Last December in the WWI drama 1917 he starred opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, then, of course, he plays the part of Tom Ripley on showtimes upcoming Ripley as well as appearing in the season two of HBO’s his dark materials.
On His Ardent Fan Base. Scott doesn’t want to be defined as just one thing. But for now, the 43-year-old Duplin native is happy to bear the moniker of Hot Priest. Since playing the dreamy cleric in Fleabag’s second season – and showcasing some serious onscreen chemistry with costar Phoebe Waller-Bridge he has developed a much different fan base than in his days as Sherlock’s ruthless villain Moriarty; typical reactions now include “Strangle me!” and “Hear my sins!” “Then, when they meet you in real life,” Scott notes, “they’re like, ‘Hello, I really enjoy your work.'”
Unorthodox Choices. When one character “becomes too hot,” as the actor puts it, it’s time to look for the next big thing. “I like playing with all those different sides of yourself without losing yourself,” he says. True to form, Scott has three upcoming projects that he calls “slightly left of center. That’s always what I’m looking for.” In 1917, “there’s nowhere to hide” because the WWI film from director Mendes was shot to look like one continuous take. Scott likes to think of it as “a very expensive film [made] on your iPhone. “You can’t cut away.” The actor is also eager to put his stamp on Ripley ( “an iconic literary character”) on Showtime’s take on the Patricia Highsmith novels.
Finding His Religion. On His Dark Materials, Scott is on the other side of the cloth as John Parry, a traveler in an alternate reality controlled by an authoritarian religious institution.
“Those books are really important for kids,” Scott says of the Philip Pullman trilogy that inspired the series. “It teaches them about goodness and kindness in the world.” Growing up as a gay man in a Catholic Church, Scott faced his own struggles with faith, making him appreciate “the ethics” of His Dark Materials. “You can be a good person in the world [without] organized religion.”
That said, between all his new career adventures, Scott says, “people will forget about the Hot Priest.” Blasphemy.

It’s been busy as always, promoting The Game Is Never Over and now working on Retro Con 2020, but I had to share something fun! This Retro interview with Martin Freeman from 2016, talks about Martin’s interest in politics, his thoughts on social media, and Much Much More!!!

This is our way of saying.. “Happy Birthday, Martin!” Sharing a beautiful selection of art, honoring one of our favorite talents! The gorgeous piece above is by CeciliaGF, the one below by Amanda Tolleson.
“We Fan’s Love You and adore you, Martin! Wishing you the best always!

Her goal is 50 shirts, let’s help make it happen!!! To purchase a t-shirt, click the link below: John Watson, You keep me right!
Although my real reason for going to London was to set up at the London Film and Comic-Con event, to share our love for Sherlock! Seeing Andrew Scott just added to an amazing week! Above photo from Present Laughter.
They gave a choice of a photo or an autograph… I went with an autograph!
Stepping away, I managed to pick up some amazing video footage of Andrew too! To those fans in this video… I wish I had a way of contacting you!
As always I’m behind on everything, but I had to give a Shout Out to this Amazing Charity/Event! For those that attended Sherlocked last year, you may remember the throwing of Rupert Graves in a Pool for Charity. [The video above shows that exciting event, recording by my friend Megan!] There’s now to be an encore, this time Rupert will be throwing Alistair Petrie in a pool for Charity! The money raised from this will go to www.borne.org.uk an organization that helps to pervert premature births, and again it was put together by Lora Den Otter, an amazing Sherlock fan that goes the extra mile to help others!
The Goal is a 1,000.00 Wouldn’t it be great to surpass that?! For more details and to donate go to Throw Petrie in the Pool!
